Ipomoea arboresens

Purchased this plant online at the beginning of 2007, when it arrive it had thick large roots so it had to go into a 12" container to get re-established.

April of "09 I wanted to attempt bonsai treatment so I chopped the taproot off and majority of thick roots to get it to fit in a shallow 8" pot.

The pot was definitely too wide for the plant so in June I moved it to a 4" diameter pot, but before doing so I had to removed roots again to get it to fit in.
One tough plant to be able to go through two major root prunings and still survive.

Update 8/29

Foliage fully open
